I set up my pi 2 to boot into raspbian GUI desktop when starting up (under raspi-config). However, the system boot into desktop first when starting up. And a few seconds later, the system boot into console. Is there any way to stay in GUI desktop?
I had the same problem when I tried to install retro-pie + rasbian desktop + rpi-update
I resolved this problem following this steps:
Configure in your retropie script setup, boot in console text insted desktop.
Configure in raspi config, boot in console too
Edit this file /home/pi/.bashrc
sudo nano /home/pi/.bashrc
Go to the bottom of the file and add
echo -e "\n$out"
echo -e "\n$out
if [ "$(tset -q)" == "linux" ]; then startx; fi
The conditional avoid run startx when you open a terminal in Desktop.
/home/pi/.bashrc file is the same file that show the temperature and others data when start rasbian console.
If you don't have retro-pie this file is different for you but you can edit similarly.
